Hi, I've a Note 9 that last night started the "connect/ disconnect" beeping constantly every tine I tried to charge it. I left it overnight and this morning it's not beeping anymore, but not charging. I tried a different cable and charger socket with the same negative result. When I plug it in via the cable to a laptop the laptop reports "Power surge in the USB, device needs more power than the usb can supply". With hindsight, I then did a silly thing and used the same cable with another Samsung phone, which is now doing the exact same thing! I can only assume the charger cables/ sockets have got contaminated with something (moisture?) that is causing some sort of short circuit. Any tips on how I can solve this problem please? Many thanks, David

Thanks for this. I bought a wireless charger (from Argos, ordered 8pm, delivered 12 hours later, amazing service) and my Note is charging fine again, all be it very s-l-o-w-l-y! My latest theory is that the charger unit I plug into the mains has gone faulty (when I plug it into the mains with nothing attached it buzzes) which has sent some sort of surge through the charging cable and blown something inside my Note that governs the wired charging. The silly thing I did though was initially assume it was my Note that had gone wrong first, and used the same plug in charger to try with my second Note, blowing that phone as well!! Neither are in warranty, so that's a £200 repair bill to get them both fixed! Oh well, we learn!

Hi, yes, it was an original Samsung charger that came with the phone. It's definitely faulty now as it's buzzing like I said, with no cable attached to it. If I had the right equipment I could probably put a meter across it and see what it was putting out.

More sizzling than buzzing to be honest (but I don't plug it in for more than half a second!)
I'm still using this on my laptop while my Note slowly charges wirelessly, so not sure about the app. I must admit I got the Note 9 so it has a nice large screen for my rapidly failing, aged eyesight! When folding screens are perfected technology (and cheaper!) I'll be first in the queue!
